US, Turkey Know Where ISIS Leader Is: Syrian UN Envoy

US, Turkey Know Where ISIS Leader Is: Syrian UN Envoy

Alwaght- The US and Turkey know the whereabouts of ISIS ringleader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Syrian Ambassador to the UN Bashar al-Ja'afari said on Friday.

In an interview with Lebanon-based al-Mayadeen television channel, the Syrian diplomat said terrorism is used as a tool by its sponsors and financiers.

He also accused the US-led coalition, which is bombarding what it calls ISIS positions, of transferring the terrorist group's elements.

"Algerian authorities arrested hundreds of terrorists on its borders with Nigeria, and after interrogating the terrorists it was revealed that they had come from Aleppo’s countryside, wondering who transported these terrorists from Syria to the Algerian-Nigerian borders," Ja'afari said.

"Americans and Turks know where Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is."

The Syrian envoy further denounced a recent deal clinched between the US and ISIS, under which Washington received “tens of tons of gold" in exchange for allowing terrorists out of Syria's Deir ez-Zor Province.

ISIS started its campaign of terror in Iraq and Syria in 2014, occupying territory in the two Arab countries and establishing a self-proclaimed “caliphate.”  

The Takfiri outfit was gradually stripped of all the land it had occupied, but ISIS remnants are now believed to be hiding in the Iraqi-Syrian border region.

Ja'afari said the West is working "to prolong the crisis in Syria" and that the administration of US President Donald Trump is seeking to keep up "investing in terrorism" in Syria and Iraq in order to pursue its agenda in the region.

He also hailed relations between Syria, Iran and Russia as "excellent," noting that talks about a rift among the trio is just "media propaganda."

"What is the interest of the Arabs in creating hostility with an important country like Iran? What is the interest of the Persian Gulf states in a war that Arabs and Iranians are fueling and Israel is watching?" he asked.

Ja'afari stressed that relations with Iran and Russia serve Syria's interests and that Damascus would not "compromise" its ties with Tehran in any negotiation.

Senior Iranian cleric  Ayatollah Muhammad Ali Movahedi Kermani said on Friday that certain Arab countries had offered $200 billion to President Bashar al-Assad to cut ties with Iran.

"However, the Syrian president did not succumb to the threats and temptations,” Ayatollah Kermani told worshipers during Friday prayers in Tehran. 

The cleric said Assad’s visit to Tehran on Monday marked a turning point in the solidarity of the "resistance front” consisting of Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and other anti-terror groups. 

The visit sent a clear message to Israel and the US that the Islamic Republic will stay in the Arab country as long as needed, Ayatollah Kermani added.
